Washington (CNN)Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, are taking a much needed break, traveling to Vancouver Sunday to cheer on the USA women's soccer team as they face off against Japan in the World Cup finals.
Bidens cheer on Team USA
The Vice President tweeted "I. Believe. That. We. Will. Win"
Mr. Biden also mentioned in a separate tweet that he had previously attended World Cup games in 2010 in South Africa and last year in Brazil.
The couple clearly were already ready to cheer as they left Washington. Jill Biden tweeted a photo of her and her husband each holding jerseys saying, "Let's bring the championship trophy home!"
As the vice president arrived in Vancouver, he greeted some staff from the U.S. consulate at the airport. "Go USA," he told the group, putting his fits in the air. "Four hours. We're ready!"
The Bidens brought some of their grandchildren with them for the game. First daughter Sasha Obama also traveled with them.
After arriving the vice president met with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. After Harper offered his condolences over the death of Biden's son, Beau, last month, the two talked about the game. The vice president told Harper he had an "overwhelming bias" on it.
"I know sometimes the big, lumbering country to the south causes you angst once and a while," Bide said, after which Harper threw his hands in the air.
As the press was leaving the room, Biden was asked for his prediction. "The United States by one goal, " he said.
The vice president has not had many public events since his son, Beau, died just more than a month ago from brain cancer.
Last Sunday, Joe Biden paid a surprise visit to Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, a week after a shooting there at a Bible class left nine dead.
"I wish I could say something that would ease the pain of the families and of the church but I know from experience -- and I was reminded of it again 29 days ago -- that no words can mend a broken heart. No music can fill the gaping void ... at least in my experience only faith. Only faith," Biden said. "Sometimes even faith leaves you just for a second. Sometimes you doubt. There's a famous expression that says faith sees best in the dark. For the nine families, this is a very dark, dark time."
